Cloud computing is boon in technology field which provide on-demand services in IT domain. Security and authentication threats are challenges associated with storage and access of data in cloud environment. Authentication in cloud computing is a major concern with the increase in cloud user base. The authentication schemes in cloud computing are based on hash function, biometric, logic functions to keep the data in secure and safe manner. This paper compares the different methods of authentication schemes in terms of complexity and the strength to prevent attacks and proposes a new improved method using sparse matrix approach performing better than simple matrix approach. Our method improves the usability of full matrix approach converting it to sparse matrix to authenticate client for use of cloud service.
